Here in Bynum, there's a lot to love about these warmer end-of-winter days. Take these sweet daffodils, for instance. They're definitely my favorite flower. Right up there with peonies. Story goes, one of our former neighbors planted daffodils at every house in Bynum as a thank you to the folks that helped her throughout her battle with cancer. Her illness took her life, but it couldn't take the pretty petals she left for everyone to enjoy.
The Fearrington Folk Art Show was, once again, so very good. The barn was full to the rafters with incredible pieces, interesting people, and enviable style. We scored an original C.M. Laster illustration of Bill Monroe. The Father of Bluegrass looks like he's about to say something really critical, but he's drawn in cheery colors so it's okay. If you get the chance to go next year, go. I can't recommend this event enough.
We loved celebrating the wedding of my Uncle Eric and his wife, Liz. They said their vows at the Chatham County Detention Center and the whole fam damily celebrated at Postal Fish Company and City Tap. My little cousin Betsiana was the flower girl for her parents and the whole evening made me feel so full and happy. Nothing could be finer.
